Turkish based series Dirilis Ertugrul has gathered a cult following in Pakistan and they just can’t get enough of it, from celebrities to locals, everyone’s in love!
In an interview earlier, Hareem Shah too revealed that she’s a fan of the show and especially Esra Bilgiç who plays Halime Sultan in the series. Hareem then shared, “If I am offered to play the role like Halime Sultan, I will definitely accept it.” She further added, “The role of Halime Sultan is very difficult, but I will do so as it will increase the knowledge of our history.”

Some pointed out that we don’t judge her on her past:
Why not? If she has acting skills,why ever not? Just because she has a "past" doesn't mean she can't have a better future.All of us can turn our life around at any point in our life.May Allah forgive us for being so discouraging.
P.S.May Allah give you sth better than money. https://t.co/qVSpv6VjWs

Some agreed how its good to have goals:
It's good to have goals. Pakistani actors and actresses are a bunch of vacuum brained morons; and trying to break into the Turkish film and television industry might actually upgrade their idiot brains. https://t.co/ZwnieFwjxg

What do you think about Hareem Shah’s wish to play a character like Halime Sultan? Is this her way of announcing that she’s ready to step into acting? Let us know in the comments below!
